Filmed over 7 years, this unique documentary follows Billy as he deals with how his homosexuality is accepted by family and peers, from child through to teenager. 

Featuring video diaries, we see Billy growing up facing many changes and milestones whilst sharing intimate details, including his struggle with self-harming. 

With tensions in the family, his mum’s health scare, a divorce and an estranged father, we see how those major changes shape Billy as he grows up on camera and tells the story in his own voice.

The result is an extraordinary longitudinal documentary about childhood, adolescence, sexuality and family.
